Chapter Summary

The big debate within the Brazilian left revolves around the character of the Lula government, in searching for analogies in the history of the international workers movement, and in deepening the analysis of the evolution of the Brazilian Workers Party (PT), Lula and his government. The history of this evolution is fundamental for understanding the real significance of Lula’s victory in the 2002 presidential elections as well as its potential, its limits and its contradictions. It is also indispensable for situating this historical juncture of the Brazilian left within the process of a hegemonic transition within the international arena associated with the rise of liberalism as the dominant model as well as within the particular evolution of Brazilian capitalism.

Keywords: accursed Cardoso legacy; Brazil’s Workers Party; governability; Lula government; neoliberalism
